The reason that Japan was successful at this was in part due to the policies introduced by Kazushige Ugaki and also because Japan needed the raw materials that Korea would provide. Because Japan had industrialized and modernized Korea so much, by the time 1940 was over, Korea was the second most industrialized country in all of Asia, second only to Japan.
